Good point, I suppose art that can be sold would be not just art, it's fine artOriginally Posted by plastic
One of the definition of art I read is "to put things together". There's no subjective opinion on good bad, art, fart.
Human effort to imitate, supplement, alter, or counteract the work of nature.
The conscious production or arrangement of sounds, colors, forms, movements, or other
elements in a manner that affects the sense of beauty, specifically the production of the beautiful in a graphic or plastic medium.
I think art (or for that matter any other thing in life) holds an inner reflection of the creator, conversely the viewer may be receptive to that and/or impose his own inner reflection.
Heck, one could probably look at the same piece on different days and get all sorts of different responses, maybe even contradictory ones.
Art designed to maximise univeral response could be called propaganda
